SCULPTURE INTERACTION GUIDELINES

Even though Laumeier's artworks are outdoors and subject to the elements, physical contact can still cause irreparable damage, making it difficult to preserve them for future generations. Please do not climb on any artworks, unless otherwise noted on the sculpture’s object label.

Artworks must sometimes be removed from view due to inappropriate public interaction. Examples of inappropriate interactions include climbing, writing (graffiti), carving or scratching on sculptures, walking off prescribed trails, paths or lawns, and general destructive activities. 

Please help us take care of our Collection; if you see anyone interacting with an artwork inappropriately, please contact the Park Rangers at 314.615.4733. County Ordinance 101.080 lists a $1,000 fine for climbing on sculpture.

Laumeier Sculpture Park would like to continue to bring new and exciting works to the Park. The more cost we accrue for artwork repairs due to public damage, the less opportunity we have to bring new sculpture to the community. Please help us maintain the Park and keep it a community treasure for years to come. Below are the recommended sculpture interaction guidelines for artworks currently on view at Laumeier.
